I was able to extract the Update 2 file on my Windows machine with 7zip. I compressed into a .zip file and I copied it back to my Linux Mint machine. I thenextracted the .zip file and compressed it back into a tar.gz and was able to finally install the theme. The Update 2 tar.gz file I downloaded several times for some reason cannot be extracted directly on my Linux Mint machine. There is either a problem with the downloaded file or a problem with my Linux Mint but I don't have any problems extracting any other files except for this one. Weird stuff! - Aug 06 2017
Hi, I am one of your biggest fans and have been using your Ambiance DS BlueSB12theme for quite awhile on my Linux Mint 18 Mate installation. It is awesome!

I was eager to download and install your "2nd Update" here, but, unfortunately, there seems to be a problem with the file. I am unable to extract it.


I get this error: An error occurred while extracting files.

Command Line Output: tar: AmbianceDSBlueSB12/gtk-3.20/assets: Cannot open: File exists
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors

I re-downloaded it and tried extracting it to different folders but I still get these errors. Could you please check to make sure the AmbianceDSBlueSB12.tar.gz file is good? I am eager to get it working.

Thanks for your hard work and sharing your great theme!

Thanks for your quick reply, pete333, and your very helpful information. Yes, Acyl icons are the ones you used in the screenshot above. I have installed them as well as the Acyl Icon Theme Manager so I can tweak the color to match yours.

Thank you very much! - Oct 26 2016
Awesome!

I've been dallying in Linux for the past 15 years or so. I've tried many different distros and themes. The theme I like best is this one and is the one I'm currently using. I would like to install the icon theme shown above but I can't find it. I've gone through all the comments here and the only reference to the icon theme is yours saying that it is the malys-uniblue-icons them. However, that is not the icon them in the screenshot above. It is the theme you've used in your other Ambiance themes but not this one. I've searched through many icon themes here on gnome-look.org but can't find it. I would really appreciate it if you could tell me which one it is and where I can download it. Then I would have the perfect Linux desktop theme!

By the way, I'm using this on Linux Mint 18 and it looks great!

Thanks for sharing your great work! - Oct 24 2016

Thanks for your responsiveness and creating a new theme with the larger mouse pointer size. 48x looks good, however, it's too large for my desktop. Is there an easy way to edit this theme to reduce it to a fixed 32x size?

Thanks for sharing! - May 27 2014
Hi,

Thanks very much for your detailed response. My problem is that I cannot live without Compiz but it has a bug that makes it difficult to change the mouse cursor theme. To do so I have to edit the /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme file by remarking out the Name line under [Icon Theme] and adding Inherits=Azenis. This works fine but I haven't found a way yet to change the size of the cursor, which I would like to do. Normal methods such as the one in the askubuntu link will not work. Thanks anyway for your input.

Thanks for sharing your work!
- May 19 2014
Your Azenis cursor enhancement looks very nice!

However, it would be very helpful if you could include detailed installation instructions, including how to change the cursor size, if Compiz is enabled.

Thanks for sharing your work! - May 10 2014

Yes, I found it, thanks to you. Your link above worked perfectly. I had previously tried to find it after I saw it on the My Spaceship screenshot but I could not find it then. Then I saw it on your Alienware screenshot. Thanks for giving me its location and for sharing that incredible screenshot of your Linux system! - Apr 18 2012
Thanks very much, tuxkernel, for your very quick response in showing me where to download that cool Conky. I had looked all over for it but could not find it. I am very grateful for your help and thanks again for sharing your very cool Desktop with the rest of us!

P.S. It's weird that my original comment, that you have responded to here, has disappeared off this site! I wonder what happened. Maybe an alien had it for breakfast! - Apr 17 2012
Your Linux Desktop is incredible! You have obviously put a lot of work into it and it shows!

Could you please let me know which Conky are you using? I see it is the same one as in the My Spaceship screenshot but in red instead of turquoise. I love this Conky and have been trying to find where I can download it since I saw it in My Spaceship. Unfortunately, the creator of My Spaceship is not responding to any requests for information. Could you please let me know where I can download it?

For those of us who may want to duplicate your Desktop could you please also let us know which GTK theme, Emerald theme, Dock and GnoMenu themes you are using? It would be much appreciated.

Thank you for sharing your excellent work! - Apr 17 2012

would you consider creating an alternative version as well that has the buttons on the right-side, so we have a choice? I'm guessing that most, including myself, would prefer right-side buttons because that's what we're used to. Years of habit, you know... - Apr 01 2011

I watched the video and this is how it looks on my computer. Is it my imagination or does it kinda look low-res and rough-looking? - Jan 16 2011
According to everything I've read so far regarding this bug in Ubuntu 10.04 the low-res problem happens with any third-party video driver, ATI & Nvidia. If the video driver is switched back to the Ubuntu driver the problem goes away, but, of course, you lose other functions such as 3D acceleration.

Thanks for your response. - Jan 16 2011
Hi, thanks for your quick response. Yes, I am using this as it was intended, as a splash screen. I installed it according to the instructions in the readme file. I am using Ubuntu 10.04. My Ubuntu desktop is at 1920x1200 but I do not know what the resolution is for the splash screen.

I have been checking on splash screen problems and it appears that there is a bug in Ubuntu 10.04 that causes Plymouth splash screens to be low-res (not just yours) if the ATI or Nvidia drivers are enabled. (I have the ATI drivers enabled.) I have found some information of fixing Plymouth's resolution here:

http://news.softpedia.com/news/How-to-Fix-the-Big-and-Ugly-Plymouth-Logo-in-Ubuntu-10-04-140810.shtml

So it looks like this is a general problem and not a problem with your splash.

If you have any other ideas about this I would like to hear them.

By the way, have you thought about making the "Puddle" ripple like it does on the Stargate shows? That would be very cool but probably very difficult to implement.

Thanks again for sharing!

- Jan 16 2011
the images (Gate Ring, Gate Spinner, etc.) as they are displayed on my computer are extremely low resolution and look very rough-hewn. Is there some way I can increase the resolution or can you supply images for higher resolution monitors such as mine (1920x1200).

By the way, I changed the background image to black which looks better on my Divinorum-themed Ubuntu.

Thanks for sharing! - Jan 15 2011

Following sedaTurca's excellent advice I was able to change the language to English. I also just downloaded xplanetFX on my main Ubuntu desktop computer and installed it. It now defaults to English. Thanks for fixing that.

xplanetFX is one of the most incredible pieces of software I have ever seen! I am totally ecstatic with how awesome my Ubuntu desktop now looks. It goes really well with the Divinorum GTK Theme and the Royal Blue icon theme, by the way.

You are very talented and have obviously spent a lot of time working on this. Thanks for sharing your hard work with the rest of us!

Thank you, my friend, for uploading this cool cpu meter screenlet. You have saved me the trouble of trying to find it on the Internet since I could not find it here on gnome-look.org. It looks very nice next to your clock theme. They are both very sharp and classy looking and look great on my Ubuntu desktop. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, my friend, for your very clear installation instructions. I don't think I could figure this out on my own because I was trying to install it as a screenlet rather than a theme for a screenlet. That's the part I overlooked. I followed your instructions and easily installed your new theme. I love it. It is very classy and sharp looking. It really enhances my desktop. Thanks for sharing this with us!

By the way, I have been looking for the CPU Meter screenlet or theme shown above that you based your clock theme on. I would like to install it as well since it would look very nice next to your clock theme. However, I can't seem to find it here on gnome-look. Is it here, or can you direct me to where I can download it.?

Thanks again for your good work! - Dec 28 2010
